St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina (thumb) was scratched from the Game 4 lineup Tuesday, Oct. 13, with C Tony Cruz hitting eighth.

Cardinals | Tony Cruz to start every day

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 15:08:23 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Tony Cruz will become the team's everyday catcher with C Yadier Molina (thumb) sidelined for at least a week. Cruz was hitting .173 with a home run and seven RBI in only 104 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: It's a huge dropoff both offensively and defensively from Molina to Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) for the Cardinals. Stash Molina in all fantasy formats in hopes he can return for the final week, although he may be limited regardless. Cruz isn't a viable option unless you're in an NL-only league, and he's a low-end FantasyScore play to close out the year.

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 08:48:17 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is out of the lineup Friday, Sept. 18, with C Tony Cruz hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Molina struck out six times in two games a couple days ago and clearly needed a couple of days as a breather. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't skilled enough offensively to use on FantasyScore against Dan Haren at this juncture.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina sitting against Nats

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:33:31 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. C Tony Cruz is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) drove in 21 runs in August, which was by far his largest monthly total, but the backstop can't play every day. Don't rule out a solid finish from Molina, but just note he is no longer a power threat with just four long flies this year. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina not in the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:04:50 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Thursday, Aug. 27. C Tony Cruz will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Molina ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .177 in limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Cardinals | Yadier Molina out of the lineup

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 08:43:42 -0700

St. Louis Cardinals C Yadier Molina is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 9. C Tony Cruz is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Molina ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. While he has a .270 batting average over his past 20 games, Molina has just two runs and six RBI to show for it. You likely can do better in the majority of seasonal leagues. Cruz ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a fantasy afterthought and should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday.
